To Serve and To Lift
of those coming to us were unemployed

The Welcome Center is the single point of entry into services – offering emergency assistance to address immediate, critical needs. Over $1M in rent, utility, food and other assistance was provided last year.
The average income of those seeking services was approximately $774 per month. Of those who obtained our Employment Services, their incomes rose to $1,836 per month.
Children & Family Services
Case management, parenting education and child development assessments help increase family stability and creates a nurturing environment in which children can grow and thrive. Mom’s Empowerment and Germaine’s Little Lambs serve families from pregnancy and through the child’s preschool years.
A home is more than simply a shelter — it’s a foundation that allows you to focus on the future. If you don’t have a permanent place to call home, it’s difficult — if not impossible — to focus on any other aspect of your life.
85% of veterans who participated in our rapid rehousing program were successfully housed at the completion of the program and 93% were still in their home six months later!
Deaf & Disability Ministries
For the past 30 years, Catholic Charities has worked to integrate persons with disabilities fully into the life of their faith community.
